I belive the service or frequency of STRATOS is now offline, It will be a while till a new channel will load up a test signal. anyone else now have Stratos on the Freeview EPG? I have a non-approved scanner.

STRATOS ceased broadcasting late last year. If you liked the channel and want to see it back, go and sign their online petition: http://www.stratostv.co.nz/

Why does everyone think that there is another channel waiting to start up on Stratos' frequency? What if there isn't? I know that tv9 is starting up on FreeviewHD.

sadly it looks like tv9 is side stepping some of the new HD areas.  JDA did not even know tv9 was going live today

Hi there,

Thanks for your email.

Sorry, due to a couple of different reasons & difficulties, it seems like we don’t have any plan in the near future to extend the coverage of TV9.
